    i've got a rv402 router. i've set up forwarding of port 53 to my server ( i've also set up a firewall access rule to allow incoming reqests from WAN on port 53. if i try to telnet to port 53 from my server it works:

    telnet 53

    if i try the same thing using the WAN ip, i get this in the errror logs:

    Connection Refused - Policy violation TCP XX.XXX.XXX.XXX:1581->XXX.XX.XXX.XX:53 on ixp1

    what am i doing wrong?

    ixp1 is WAN1 i guess are you sure your comming in on the right WAN or have a policy for WAN2 and port 53 perhaps? just a thought.....

    Also Port 53 is for DNS, just wondering if this is confusing the RV unit.
    since telnet is port 23 by default.

    think i figured it out. the rule allowed port 53 on UDP, but not TCP. when i tried to telnet in, i was establishing a tcp connection, which was blocked.

    now the big questions. do dns queries generally come in as tcp or udp?
